Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Harry Flynn responds to anti-Catholic editorial in Strib

Wow. In an instant, our (very patient) Archbishop saw that the time for direct response had come - and acted. In today's Star Tribune, the Archibishop has an editorial in which he responds quite strongly to a prior, very anti-Catholic, editorial endorsed by the Strib: get the full text here. (Note how the Strib has chosen to title the editoral, and the byline... a bit sore methinks.)


"Understandably" the editorial states, "Catholics don't find 'The Pope and the Witch' funny at all." With that statement, we most certainly agree. We could hardly find a nightmarish parody of the papacy, a fundamental tenet of our faith that has 2,000 years of history, to be very funny. One doubts that a play viciously satirizing a revered or historic leader of the Jewish or Islamic faiths as a heroin-addicted, bumbling paranoid would characterized by those faith adherents as "funny."

Thank you for telling it like it is, Your Excellency!

Ray over at Stella Borealis has been the one-stop shop for this issue, which should be of interest not just to local Catholics, but to the broader Catholic community. After all - if they can pull this despicable play off here, chances are they can pull it off in your neck of the woods too, using your tax dollars!
